The Burbank City Animal Shelter is announcing new hours. Starting January 4, 2016, the Shelter will be closed to the public on Mondays. The new schedule will allow Animal Shelter staff members and the Volunteers of the Burbank Animal Shelter (VBAS) to attend to critical needs of the Shelter, such as facility maintenance, animal assessments and socialization. This will result in an enhanced environment and better care for the animals. The new schedule will also allow for additional attention to administrative duties involving the operation of the Shelter.Burbank Animal Shelter Pic
